Implicits are often regarded with suspicion by developers, with some teams going as far as banning them from their codebases.
In this talk, you will discover how implicit conversions and parameters work in Scala. We will explore resolution rules and their precedence and once you have a good understanding of that, you will learn about design patterns – where they can come in handy as well as scenarios where they should definitely be avoided. At the end of this session, you will have a better idea about the power and the responsibility that comes with the 'i-word'.
